Because my partner had been a military officer we were allowed to join the Presidio Yacht Club which was in Fort Baker just under the Golden Gate Bridge. It is the most spectacular yacht club on the Bay. There is always a 10 knot wind and you can leave under sail from the dock .... in 1 min. to be under the Golden Gate Bridge.
There were not many moorings. The clubhouse was so run down, we called it the Polish Yacht Club. It only served beer and hotdogs. There were occasional barbecues of hamburger.
I loved our humble rag tag yacht club.
The newspaper tells me that the harbor is going to be upgraded with fancy well-designed moorings, retail stores and a significant yacht club.
It looks like my simple living paradise will be no more.
